    May you wake up on January 1st,
    finding that the world has not come
    to an end, the lights work, the water
    faucets flow, and the sky has not fallen

    May you ponder how this ultramodern
    civilization of ours managed to get
    itself traumatized by a possible
    slip of a blip on a chip made out of sand
    May what you see in the mirror delight you
    and what others see in you delight them

    May someone love you enough
    to forgive your faults, be blind
    to your blemishes, and tell the
    world about your virtues
    May the telemarketers wait to
    make their sales calls until you finish dinner,
    and may your check book and your budget
    balance and may they include
    generous amounts for charity

    May you remember to say
    'I love you' at least once a day
    to your spouse, your child,
    your parents, your friends;
    but not to your secretary,
    your nurse, your masseuse,
    your hairdresser or your tennis instructor

    May we live as God intended, in a world at peace and the awareness of His love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

    A Very Happy New Year to All!

    I didn't get it about the hairdressers, etc - but I do now (I can be slow).

    I hope everyone is having "positive" weather (wherever you may be > I mean that it is not so bad that you cringe to think of going outdoors)
    I was so happy when we (for the first time in years ) had snow the week before christmas...then on christmas day it warmed up and rained till yesterday Last night (new years eve) it was really wet (but not RAINing) and BITTER cold (freezing up) and this afternoon lite snow flurries... so that is ok by me (anything but freezing rain!)
